Is your crawl space crawling with things it shouldn’t be? Dr. Crawlspace can clean out rodents, mold, fungus, old vapor barriers and insulation – and whatever else needs to be removed to make way for a clean and safe space in your home.
Moisture in your crawl space is never a good thing! We’ll take your damp, dirty space and fully encapsulate it with our line of industry-leading products to improve your home’s overall air quality and lower your energy costs year-round.
To vent or not to vent? That has been the controversial question! Older practices recommended venting crawl spaces and opening/closing the vents depending on the season. Modern science has shown that the best solution is simply a vapor barrier or full encapsulation.
In order to effectively control moisture, your crawl space needs a completely intact and opaque (not clear) vapor barrier. We’ll clean out and replace your worn out, soiled, or torn vapor barrier and replace it with upgraded products made to withstand traffic and stay tethered in place for long periods of time.
Crawl space encapsulation, or sealing, takes moisture control a step further than a vapor barrier. The first step of this process is to install a vapor barrier with sealing tape. A complete encapsulation can also include a sump pump, insulation, and/or a dehumidifier to properly condition the air.
Sealing your crawl space is the “hard part.” Dehumidifiers are the “easy part” and the key to maintaining a healthy humidity level of 45 – 50%. They’re durable, long-lasting, and low maintenance. We’ll recommend one of our trusted partner brands.
Is your insulation sagging or hanging? Are you lacking insulation altogether? Dr. Crawlspace will provide closed cell foam, subfloor, and duct wrapping insulation along with duct and floor penetration sealing to keep your crawl space sealed and energy-efficient.
Mold and mildew in your crawl space can lead to odor, allergies, and health concerns. Luckily, both are easily identified and killed. By controlling humidity, Dr. Crawlspace can keep mold from sporing and spreading and prevent it from coming back!
